Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, Serena Williams and Naomi Osaka were lights on the rain in Melbourne, in the day 1 of the Australian Open 2020, a particular edition for what is going on with fires across Australia. Federer, Djokovic, Serena and Osaka reached the second round of the first Slam of the season, with convincing victories.
Matteo Berrettini, Grigor Dimitrov, Stefanos Tsitsipas, Ashleigh Barty, Sofia Kenin, Caroline Wozniacki and Petra Kvitova also reached the second round. Cori Gauff eliminated Venus Williams. Out also Denis Shapovalov and Borna Coric.
Many matches have been postponed to day 2 due to the rain that compromised the first day of the Australian Open: all the ongoing outdoor matches, which will be played in super Tuesday, were canceled. Only those who played under the three retractable roofs managed to end their matches.
Greg Rusedski, former US Open finalist, talked about the Big Three and their chances in the Slams: “I think we should always put Djokovic, Nadal and Federer as favorites, but Stefanos Tsitsipas' performances at the ATP Finals in London were incredible.
Maybe, if a Slam tournament is won by someone other than a Big Three, then maybe it will be Tsitsipas. I like him". What do you think of the outfits of Grigor Dimitrov and Serena Williams? The Bulgarian and the American surprised their looks; Dimitrov's suit is very original, as is the outfit worn by Serena.
Surely the most original and fun outfits of the tournament! Piotr Wozniacki talked about the retirement of her daughter Caroline: "I knew she was already thinking about retiring and I think she made the right decision.
It won't be easy for her to leave all this, a sport that has followed her for more than a decade and from which he received so many positive results. I have to be honest, I believed that Caroline would have already retired at 25-26 years-old.
Instead, her best years were the following years. I wish she could retire in the best way." Tomorrow On the court Rafael Nadal and Maria Sharapova.
